About

The Custodial Services and Waste Management operations are committed to providing a clean, safe and healthy environment for the campus community. We take great pride in the appearance and cleanliness of the campus and the impact our services have on the academic experience. Our goal is to continuously enhance our service delivery and maintain the highest of standards.

We do so by remaining current in the areas of environmentally sustainable products and industry best practices to achieve the highest levels of health, efficiency and effectiveness.

Custodial Services and Waste Management have approximately 2.5 million building square feet to maintain across approximately 20 campus buildings. The cleanable square feet is approximately 1.6 million.

 

What We Do

Custodial Services and Waste Management provide a broad spectrum of cleaning services, including but not limited to general cleaning services in buildings, restrooms, floor care (for example, carpet cleaning or strip and wax hard surface floors), trash and recycling removal and project work as appropriate. Waste Management also provides minor moving services to campus departments and other units on a cost recovery/recharge basis.

Our three shifts work around the clock to ensure our classrooms, laboratories, offices and indoor spaces continue to promote the integrity, quality and values of the University's mission and its goals. We even have a Custodial Services team dedicated to specifically support the Cesar Chavez Student Center. The department is also responsible for supporting multiple events for the campus, including Sneak Preview and Commencement at Oracle Park.

Recycle, Compost, and Landfill bins

 

About

Waste Management utilizes a recycling program wherein all acceptable recycling materials can be disposed of into three recycling containers.  These are, recycling, compost and landfill recycling containers. Containers are easily identifiable with "recycling" on the left, "compost" in the middle and "landfill" on the right.

For more information about what items can be recycled and what items cannot be recycled, please visit our Custodial Services and Waste Management FAQ page.
